The Neighborhood History section of alleghenywest.org has been online for just the last few months and has already garnered a fair bit of traffic. With more expected to come from visitors who learned about the resource during the Christmas Tours, it would be great to keep things growing.
To that end, if you have a researched house history from Carol Peterson and haven’t yet dropped it off at the AWCC office (806 Western Avenue), please do so soon! We’ve heard from a few folks who have these documents and have been meaning to drop them off…for several months running…so it would be great to have them for scanning by Pitt.
In addition, the AWCC 50 Year Timeline project is still moving forward. Doris and Greg have been mining the council office for useful materials and editing has begun on video interviews recorded in the last few months. We’d still love having more voices in the mix, though so if you’d like to participate in an interview, please let us know.
